Raw Kale Salad Recipe - Only 4 Ingredients (P. 117 in Detox Delish)

2 bunches kale (at least 1 pound)

1/2 tsp. sea salt (optional or to taste)

2 lemons, squeezed

4 Tbsp. olive oil (or combine with flaxseed or avocado oil)

After de-stemming the kale, chiffonade the kale by  tightly rolling the leaves up and then thinly slice the rolls.

After de-stemming the kale, tightly roll up the kale leaves and slice them into fine shreds.

Add the salt and lemon juice and leave 5 –10 minutes so the salt and citrus break down the kale. Massage the kale about 5 minutes or until it is tender.  (If in a rush, you can start massaging the kale right away.) Add in the remaining ingredients. oils. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to three5 days.  Makes 2 meals or 4 servings (as side dishes). 

Note: Massaged kale makes a complete lunch, but I often add a cooked side along with salads, especially in the cold months. If I’m doing a detox, I’ll just do the salad. I love it when people try this salad because most often they can’t believe kale, which is wiry unless boiled, steamed, or fried, can taste so tender and good.
